Nicki Minaj Rules 2011 American Music Awards (+ Video)

Nicki Minaj hit the American Music Awards 2011 like a pink-wigged robot, decked out in a cyborg-looking outfit to perform David Guetta’s “Turn Me On.” She then would perform “Super Bass” (to the glee of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez) before returning to the stage to accept a couple AMA trophies.

One of the unintentionally funny moments from the American Music Awards was when Nicki won for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album. Wearing massive heels and long green dress, Nicki needed help from an AMA staffer (or security guard) to walk all the way across the stage.

And luckily he was there to help here, because Minaj slipped once or twice even with his help.

Later, Nicki won her second award (Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist) and made it a point to inspire her fans with her acceptance speech.

“Chase your dreams, I never thought that this could be possible … Shout out to all the female rappers, past, present, and future.” [Source]
